Bruce Springsteen plays longest U.S. show in Philly

The Boss shattered a former record he set just last week

There's no doubt that The Boss was on fire Wednesday night during his show at Citizens Bank Park.

He played for four hours and about four minutes, according to Billboard — that's Bruce Springsteen's longest show ever in the U.S., and it happened across the river from the state he used to call home.

The new record breaks the one that the rockstar, 66, set just last week when he played a four-hour, one-minute-long set at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during his "The River" 2016 tour. Springsteen's latest achievement is still a few minutes shy of breaking his world record of four hours and six minutes in Helinski, Finland, four years ago.

Springsteen's show at MetLife Stadium was diehard fan and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's 141st, according to He was spotted there rocking out to the singer's hit, "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out."

Springsteen and the E Street Band are scheduled to play Citizens Bank Park again Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
